Buying a property is not an easy job. In fact it’s a very tough job and the toughness is increasing day by day as the rules and regulations are becoming harder and harder. Theses days, the world market are undergoing great loss. Either its US or England all is experiencing a major setback. Real estate is also not far behind. You must have seen that construction work of many buildings has been left alone. Can you guess what the reason behind this is? Yes the main reason is bad economy. Not only you but the whole world is suffering from bad economy. One feels thrice before selling their house sine the prices are going down and down daily. The problem is what should they do? The answer is very difficult but renting the property is not so bad option. I will explain you about how to rent a property.

You must have gone through the rental process and hence you must know that renting is a very risky job. Yes it really is. Can you imagine what you will do when the person whom you have rented your house refuses to release your house? You will certainly be in great trouble if you have not signed a contract.

It was not older than yesterday that I came across one of the deal like this. I took the person who was in need to the owner of the house. Everything was fine but I hesitated on one point. The person wanted to pay the advance which was half of the monthly rental. But I stopped him from doing so. The reason was simple that he should sign a contract first and after that only he will be allowed to pay advance or even full money. Do you believe this is harsh or useless? My dear friend, I assure you that it’s must to sign the contract. If you will not do so then you will be the victim sometime later.

Once you have signed the contract, the next step is to fix the rental amount. You should look all the things like: the cost of electricity, water tax, value of the house. I assure you that you will be required to do some research as far as deciding the rent is concerned. To help you on this aspect, you can consult with a condo management Naples or any other real estate or property professionals. 

Once you have fixed the rental amount you next step should be to talk to your real estate agents. You should really take his guidance throughout the process. You must know that he is a professional and knows more than you.

I have told you some of the steps. I will really insist you that whenever you again try to rent out your house you should follow following points and you will see that you will always be in profit.

Turn onto the backstreets of my town home neighborhood, and the beauty of the Old World style homes will pleasantly surprise you. The community is small, and the landscaping is fresh and well-maintained. The neighborhood looks like a dream.

Move in and you will have a rude awakening from that dream. Town homes and condominiums are supposed to be that nice middle ground for homeowners who do not want to rent but also not have the hassle of landscape and other outside maintenance. Unfortunately, not all homeowners or renters in our community have the same goal of a pleasant neighborhood. You can see Kopar at Newton with best locality and community. You can buy or rent yourself your dream house as well. With a long list of best option you are just one click away.

As I am sure this is a universal issue, here are a few tips for learning to be a good neighbor in a town home or condominium community.

Be Cognizant of the Rules

Whether you own or rent in a community, always be sure you know and understand the community rules. The policies are in place for a reason: so that many different people of many different backgrounds can come together in a peaceful, pleasant neighborhood. If you own a unit in a community but rent it out, be sure your renters understand the rules. You will be the one responsible should your renters not follow the policies.

Be Careful about Parking Issues

Most communities, like mine, have a policy regarding parking. You should park only in your own driveway (you would be surprised how many people feel they can park in another’s drive). Many people use their garage as a storage shed and park wherever they want. Or families have too many vehicles for their home. Be courteous to your neighbors and work on getting your vehicles into the proper places. Depending on your neighborhood’s rules, stick with your own driveway and garage. Do not use or overuse extra parking places designed for guests.

Another reason you should always park in designated places is that if you park in a mailbox, mail may not be delivered. It has happened in my neighborhood. An across-the-street neighbor parked her car in front of my mailbox and I saw the postman make a wide arc around the car and my mailbox. Thanks to her, I did not get my mail that day. Postal workers are not required to get out of their trucks to deliver mail to boxes that are parked in. (I checked!)

Do not park on narrow streets where emergency vehicles cannot pass. In my neighborhood, for example, we have streets wide enough or two vehicles to pass, but no more. If someone is parked on the curb, you have to let the other car pass before you can get around. Unfortunately, one night an ambulance was called to a home in the back of the community. The ambulance could not pass through one street because two cars were parked, one on either side of the road, and did not leave enough room for even one car to pass. Seconds matter when there is an emergency.

Parking issues can also cost you a lot of money. What would happen if a fire engine could not get through? Imagine how much of a building would burn before a fire truck could get through.

Be Courteous to your Neighbors

Garbage day is the bane of most communities. Inevitably, speaking as someone who is on the board of directors for my homeowner’s association, we get complaints about those who never take their trash cans back in after garbage pickup. Or garbage is taken out too early and a windstorm sends the trash all over the neighborhood. Rule of thumb (and again, check your own association’s policies): Do not bring your trash to the curb until the night before/day of garbage pick up. Take your trash can in as soon as possible after garbage pick up. Also do not make an enemy of your neighbor by not properly securing your trash and wind up with garbage all over the yards.

Dogs are another big problem in communities. Yes, they are cute and lovable but also work. Be a responsible pet owner and clean up after your dog- even if it is in your own yard. When you are sharing walls and yard space, no one wants to look at dog waste. Many people choose to not have a dog and will resent having to clean up dog waste from their own yards.

Also, keep your pet on a leash whenever it is outdoors. My daughter was nearly bitten while playing in on our own patio. The dog from across the street, not on a leash, came running over barking, trying to “protect” its turf. In a small community like a condo or town home neighborhood, you have to be extra careful about your pets.

Good Fences Make Good Neighbors

I have always liked that line from Robert Frost’s poem: “good fences make good neighbors.” In a town home community, we need those fences both in the literal as well as the metaphorical sense. If you are able and wish to, sometimes a good solid fence will help keep the neighborhood peace. But if not, use a metaphorical one. Keep your things in your space. If you have shared space, such as a front patio or a rear yard, keep your side neat and tidy. When in doubt, ask your neighbor. It is far better to open a line of communication than to go ahead and cause a rift. Take criticism or requests seriously and be open to them. We had a neighbor ask us to take down our birdfeeder. It was shared space so we did. It is far easier to politely comply than to fight for our right to do something. It was his right to look out at that yard as much as it was ours.

If worse comes to worst, go to your association board. The reason they exist is to keep things running smoothly in the neighborhood. Or better yet, get involved! I mentioned I am a part of my homeowner’s association. Out of nearly 200 homes, only 4 people ran for a 3 places on the Board of Directors. For two years the same 3 directors and 3 other committee members have served with no other offers of help. Get involved in your community and you will find it can be a better place to live.

Summers are the best time of the year as it is the time to go for a long vacation to get some time off from the hectic daily life and spend some quality time with your family and pet.

There are various amazing and eye-popping spots all over the world to spend a quality summer vacation, but no place can beat the long beaches and fantastic weather of Myrtle Beach in the SouthCarolina of the United States.
